Open Air cliff top theatre, stunning atmospheric place. Performances are usually very good or better. Beautiful views may include dolphins, basking sharks and seals. You will need to take waterproof ground covers for seating areas, blankets or layers of clothing for evening performances-It gets pretty...More

We had seen it on a TV programme and added to our bucket list. We were not disappointed. Fantastic views and a unique experience, highly recommended but dress accordingly and take cushions and blankets although you can rent them.

We visited in the morning before the matinee starts, very good museum to explain where it all started and how this wonderful place is there. Lots of tourists and great to just sit and take it all in, wonderful views .

We went to see Dr Do-little (the evening performance) and had a wonderful visit. The performance was incredible and the theatre just outstanding. A real showstopper. The staff were friendly and helpful. The theatre bar/shop is also very reasonably priced.
